Maylarch Environmental Ltd welcomed the Prime Minister and local MP David Cameron along with representatives from Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership and Oxfordshire Apprenticeships to their Eynsham head office on Friday 8th April to discuss the impacts of developing skills within the workforce. As part of the government’s pledge to create three million apprenticeships by 2020, Mr Cameron came to see how Maylarch practices its commitment to Apprenticeships and upskilling training.
Maylarch confirmed that they recognise that their most important resource is to their employees and given the nature of the work that they undertake, staff training and development is at the forefront of their business.
Hatti Tweedle, HR and Training Manager for Maylarch said “Apprenticeships help young people to immerse themselves in a career while gaining qualifications which they will be able to use in the future. It is also beneficial for a company to have the possibility to train its future employees at the earliest possible stage.”
Managing Director, Nick Williamson also stated “We have operated within the IIP (Investors In People) framework since 2005 and follow a training programme designed by the CITB (Construction Industry Training Board), which is supported by our membership to The 5% Club. Our apprentices, therefore, have the confidence that they are being trained to the highest level and following the best practices of the industry. In return, we know we can rely on their professionalism and enthusiasm to execute a great job.”
